An NHS Trust adopting flexible working with British Land’s Storey

Workplace challenges facing the NHS Trust:

Before the NHS Trust adopted flexible working with British Land’s Storey they had hundreds of administrative staff scattered across lots of different buildings. Typically these buildings were older buildings, often once residential and no longer ideal for modern-day office work.

Leaders, management and employees all knew they could be happier and more productive in better office surroundings. Their admin teams were working on hospital sites that could be much better utilised as clinical space.

They suspected they were paying significantly more for the office space than market rates but couldn’t prove it and maintenance on ageing buildings was becoming an increasing cost and burden on resources.

Our solution:

We were able to secure 6 Orsman Road, Haggerston, London for the large team. A flexible working and cost-effect solution for 550 admin staff.

Homerton University Hospital secured a lease for 3.25 floors (Circa 16,000 sq ft) at British Land’s 6 Orsman Road building. Part of their Storey offering.

Homerton University Hospital had One office comprised of 350 desks, enabling 550 people to work flexibly from the space. With modern furnishing, lots of meeting rooms, breakout spaces and phone booths for collaborative and private working. The building itself offered free use of additional shared space outside their floors and demise, for use as breakout, meeting rooms, a large roof terrace, and even a café.

This enabled the staff to work, interact and collaborate more easily in a comfortable, purpose-built environment.

Homerton University Hospital were also able to make significant savings on their costs relative to previous office stock.
